Destiny Is Manifested Only Through Action

Action cures fear. It cures everything. If you want to move ahead, if you want to achieve greatness, you must make action your best friend. Because there is nothing you cannot achieve when you take action.

It is not okay to dream. It is not okay to talk. It is not okay to plan. If you want your dream to come to pass, you must take action. Talk will not do it for you. Planning is good, but you need to take action to put your plan to work.

Take action. Don’t live a life of inaction. Inaction is a disease. If you want to cure your inaction, take action. There is power in action. In the words of Suzy Kassem, “Destiny is manifested only through action. You cannot be the captain of your own destiny, only the sailor, because we cannot control external influences that may alter the stability or direction of our ships. Once you understand this basic principle, you won’t be so hard on yourself when things don’t go your way. If man could could write his own fate, he would have designed his journey to be without obstacles.” From now on, you shouldn’t worry yourself about what you cannot control. You can’t control what is happening out there, but you can control yourself.
